“There are tender moments on many of her later records, though they aren’t necessarily the moments that we think defined her, but Little Girl Blue allows that side to come forward much more clearly.” - PENGUIN JAZZ TO JAZZ

“Accompanied by bassist Jimmy Bond and drummer Albert Heath, she shines on these magnificently chosen standards, which showcase her remarkable piano playing that was clearly imbued with the Classical tradition (racism deprived her of the Classical music career she had dreamed of) and a voice which fluctuates between harshness and gentleness.”- JAZZ MAGAZINE
